I've been lusting for a new camera, but only now have I an inkling what I truly want.

Seems to me like Leica's latest M (Typ. 240) is your only option. Unless you're not willing to buy new lenses, then there's simply no option for you. Oh, I forgot it actually has video! Then maybe Leica M9…

An M 240 costs about $7,000 brand new. There's the Leica M-E for a more reasonable $5,450. The legit Leica lenses are the best in the business, but are also very expensive, so less expensive options from Zeiss and Vöigtlander are also very good.

You can probably look for the M9 in other stores, I only checked B&H. Maybe special dealers like Ken Hansen will have better deals.
